4th Annual Grattan Fun Fest!

Saturday, May 16, 2009 from 11-5 pm. A fun-filled event for the entire family featuring live music by great local bands including The Cottontails, Gaucho, GG Amos and more! Kids' carnival with food, games and prizes, plus a silent auction and wine cellar raffle! Check out our website for more information:


  1. This a great event, highly recommended and by the way, we just live in the neighborhood, we don't have kids at Grattan.

  2. So many events, wish we could go to all!

  3. One of the things that makes the Fun Fest particularly fun and unique is the high quality local bands that come play. Hopefully a schedule will be up on the website soon, but here is a fuller list of who are playing:
    * The Cottontails
    * Gaucho
    * GG Amos
    * The Bluebelles
    * Ramshackle Romeos
    * Toshio Hirano
    * Carolina Picknick
    * Pete Devine's Jug Band
    * The Fireflies
    * The Grattan School Ukulele All-Stars

  4. Silent auctions are too quiet.

  5. I just went throught the list of silent auction items last night. There is FANTASTIC stuff. And I know that last year, many of these items went for amazing low prices. I realize that the point of the auction is to make money for the school, but for you BARGAIN HUNTERS, this is the place to come. You can check the list of items on the web site. I know more items will be there that are not even listed (I just turned in $500 worth of stuff this morning, with more to come next week).\

    There is also a raffle for 50 bottles of wine, worth at least $1,000.
